Viking!

PodCastle story recs

These PodCastle stories were quite nice:
- Love Among the Talus: About a princess who finds out the truth about her position and who takes decisive action... I loved the subtle world-building, and the plot is very satisfying.
- And Their Lips Rang With The Sun: Gives a very nice look on a non-western culture and their mystical rituals. I loved some of the expressions used. It reminded me of a sphere from Everway.
- Väinämöinen and the Singing Fish: Based on a Finnish folktale from the time when every Fin could still charm the world around him/her. Doesn't end too well, though -- but that is to be expected from a Finnish tale.
